Why did God leave us one tale after another of wounded lives being restored? It isn’t to tell us what Jesus did. It’s to tell us what Jesus does. Paul says in Romans 15:4, “Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us. The Scripture gives us patience and encouragement so that we can have hope.”
Reflect on your own journey. What was it like before you met Christ? And share your story; not with everyone necessarily, but with someone. Your honest portrayal of your past may be the courage for another’s future. But don’t just depict the past. Depict the present. Describe his touch and the difference Jesus has made in your life. He’s not finished with you yet! Ah, but look how far you’ve come! What God begins, God completes. The God who spoke still speaks. The God who forgave still forgives. He still moves stones.
